The Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) is a global initiative started in 2014 by the Junior League of London to raise awareness of the impact of generational poverty. As a participant, I'll be wearing the same black dress for five (5) consecutive days to illustrate the effects of how life circumstances can impact women's access to resources, confidence and professional opportunities. I'll also be wearing a pin that reads "Ask Me About My Dress", which invites dialogue among colleagues, friends and strangers to raise awareness about the many challenge’s women in our service area face. So many of us must choose between meeting the needs of our households or having more options for what to wear during the work week.
For this week in December, JLOSH chooses to stand with the many women who work with pride, dignity and with an ethic that aspires all of us.
